Bernier starting tonight and Quick tomorrow is only a subtly retarded move. TM pulled that crap (starting Bernier against the stronger team when rest wasn't an issue) earlier in the season on 11/15 (SJS - Bernier lost) and 11/17 (CBJ - Quick lost).
Now we have Quick winning the last three, an extended all-star break so he's well-rested, yet Bernier starts against the stronger team tonight and Quick goes up against the weaker one tomorrow. Then they have a 2 day break directly after tomorrow, so again, rest isn't an issue.
I suppose there's a possible internal reason that we don't know (Quick is sick, etc.), but it makes no ****ing sense, I tell you. I hope Bernier can shake the rust off fast.....
Edit...just saw this TM quote....
"I guess I could have gone with Quick in both games, but I think that would be pretty demanding right now, with the travel," Murray told lakingsinsider.com. "I talked to Bernier about four days before the last game, actually, and let him know that he was going to be playing in this game. Quick went back to the East Coast, took his family back, and had a little more travel. Bernie was staying in L.A., just getting rested and getting ready to get going. So that was the reason for it, quite honestly. That was the reasoning behind it. I really felt that I had to share the two games on the back-to-back, and that was the reason for it."
Yep. Cause riding on an airplane is so brutally tiring....those last three sentences are pretty funny....."Terry, so was that the reason for it?".......
